Paint the town green at Real Journeys second annual charity ball at Walter Peak, to support New Zealand endangered birds.

Enjoy a drink and canapes on the TSS Earnslaw before sitting down to a specifically designed gourmet dinner at the Colonel's Homestead Restaurant.

Take an exclusive sneak peak at the Tamatea/Dusky Sound Art Exhibition by renowned and emerging New Zealand artists, before dancing the night away to the Nairobi Trio.

As conservation is an intrinsic part of Real Journeys heritage, 100% of all proceeds go towards DOCs Dusky Sound Conservation and Restoration Project.
